Kestrin & Jonathan: Wedding #2

San Francisco, CA

November 1st, 2011

Kestrin and Jonathan had an oceanside wedding in Carmel, CA and then followed it up the next day with a second wedding in San Francisco at Flora Grubb Gardens. Wedding #2 has nothing to do with water, other than the fact that San Francisco is on the bay….I know….quite a thematic stretch, but the party looks like it was amazing, so I had to show it. The venue, the wedding, and the guests are all pretty avant garde (guests were asked to dress for a meeting with the Queen of Hearts). Kestrin and Jonathan definitely achieved the “Wonderland” measured chaos they were hoping for. Thanks to Feather Love Photography for sharing these photos.

Kestrin & Jonathan: Day Two – San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

October 15th, 2011

I’ll be honest. Day Two of Kestrin’s and Jonathan’s wedding in San Francisco has nothing to do with a wedding on water. I’m allowing myself a little creative license here, so how about “San Francisco is a city on a bay?” Does that work? Well, it has to. This is just too good to pass up, and thanks to Feather Love Photography for giving it to us.

The day after their intimate ceremony on the ocean in Carmel, Kestrin and Jonathan moved to the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, where they got ready for their second ceremony and reception, which took place that evening (and well into the morning) at Flora Grubb Gardens. But first, they took advantage of their awesome location and had an impromptu photo shoot at the hotel.

Alison Events Opens East Coast Office

San Francisco, CA and Rowayton, CT

January 10th, 2011

I’ve been following Alison Events, a wedding and events planning company that specializes in destination weddings (and is based in my favorite city, San Francisco) from the very minute I got into this business. I love everything about them, as far as I can tell. I love their website, their blog, the fact that they have a special place in their hearts for photographer Thayer Allyson Gowdy (her wedding photo site) whose very special work I’ve been following for years, and the idea that they just opened an east coast office right in my old neck of the woods, Fairfield County, Connecticut. I couldn’t have put them in a better spot myself. I can hardly wait to see what this talented group does with weddings all through New England, and I’m especially excited to see the weddings on water, of course!

Lame, I know, that I don’t have any of their imagery posted, but I didn’t want to lift without permission, and I just learned today, via Twitter, that the east coast office was now open (in lovely Rowayton, CT), so I chose not to wait. Nevertheless, be sure to check out their book, published by Chronicle Books,
